More Tri Nations

Ok from what I can gather so far... since the half way point the Criminality (Australia) have beaten the Boks which put them top of the table but then the Blackness beat the Sud Afrikens in New Zealand which has put the Kiwis on top of the table on points difference. So going into the final weekend Australia have two wins, one loss, New Zealand too have one win, one loss but a better points differential/more bonus points and the Boks have finished their Tri-Nations 'campaign' (I use that term loosely with regards the Springboks resting most of their players for this tournament) with 1 win and 3 losses.

Ok.. so it comes down to New Zealand vs Australia in Eden Park, Auckland this Saturday... I'm gonna go out on a limb and call a victory for the ABs in this one
